CEO prodigy Hunter Carlisle is looking for an admin, and he's picked me. Filthy rich and sinfully handsome, he's the bachelor everyone wants.

But he has a secret.

This was good! Sort of has a fifty shades feel without all the bdsm and on a much lighter scale. Definitely a HFN but it was happy enough for me and I really don't like when things don't end happy. There's some angst, but it's hard to explain and not an issue in the present time per say but I see I can see some major angst in the future with these two so I'm a little Leary of continuing with the series but I liked this one a lot! I like Olivia the main character a lot and several supporting ...more

Now I knew buying this book ( short story) that it was right at 200 pages, I know I don't normally buy a book less than 300 pages so shame on me for being pi**ed its so short!! The concept of the book seemed familiar (think FSOG, pretty women) but I'm a sucker for smart/ feisty down on their luck girls making it to the top and finding love scenarios. So I took a chance bought a short story thinking it would be a story, even being book one I thought it'll wrap everything up and the next book will ...more

Blurb caught my attention and the price was right -- FREE! Fans of the Fifty Shades revolution will probably enjoy the antics at work here. It runs the same gambit and not much new or refreshing to add to what has been done over and over. A little less than well-developed at this point, and you're going to have to wait for more on Olivia and Hunter. Yes, prepare yourself to be left standing alone and asking why. Not a bad read if this is your preference and it was free.

Ok I'll be honest with you about this book. When I read the book description, I wasn't going to buy it. Why? Because ever since 50 Shades it seems like everyone needs a contract for sex. BUT, then I discovered that Willow Summers is the alter-ego of one of my all time favorite authors, K. F. Breene. That is all I needed to know to 1-click her newest creation. And let me say, I'm sooooooooo glad that I did because I absolutely loved it!

I, like most hot-blooded women, lust me a sinfully gorgeous,

Sooooo. Not fully sure what to say about this one. I would of really appreciated it if I had been warned about the fact that Hunter has a fiancée. I really don't like cheating and even if the engagement was more like a business deal and they have nothing to do with eachother it still rubbed me the wrong way. Honestly Hunters personality in general rubbed me the wrong way. I like my heroes to be damaged, but Hunter was just an ass. That contract in general is just ridiculous. As for Olivia? Well ...more

I just wanted a silly smutty book to read, this was free and it fit the bill, so why not? I ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. It's basically a mixture of the movie "Pretty Woman" (no kissing allowed and she goes shopping with his money) and the book Fifty Shades of Grey (I actually haven't read that but I know that they are both supposed to be plain but pretty, are a bit adorably awkward at times, and have a special contract with a high powered CEO).

I got lost in this book. It hooked me from the first page and before I knew it it was over. I can't wait to dive into the next book. However one down fall is the buy of each next part. The stories are short yet the price for each one is high. However as I said it hooked me from the jump so I'm going to see what book 2 is all about, if it's anything like book one I fear I maybe going broke buying the rest of this series.

I can't begin to count all the ways that I loved this book. Though fairly predictable, it hit all the right buttons for me: a strong, quirky heroine, a sometimes-sweet-but-always-jaded alpha, an office setting, and strong writing. All of these mixed together to create something magical. I loved being witness to Olivia giving Hunter a run for his money. I definitely became invested in them and I can't wait to read book 2.

This was a FSOG like book. The characters were okay. I thought Olivia was an okay character, but could have been more relatable. Also, I thought Hunter was good, but I wanted to know more about his past. The storyline was good, but could have been better. The ending was good. Recommended for fans of FSOG. Overall, an okay read.

Yes, Please is book one in the Please Series, one that I downloaded for free. After reading the Look Inside section of this, I went ahead and purchased the following three books that make up the whole series. It appealed to me, and believe me, it has to be appealing for the Aussie dollar it costs to buy the further 3 books of this series were talking serious investment here because the Aussie dollar has taken a dive against the greenback (USD), and is over $5 per book.

Reminds me a lot of 50 Shades on all fronts, but without the BDSM content. Basically, it's all vanilla, with wealth, employment, bossiness, and drama over a contract.

"Business. Blessed, unfeeling business."- Olivia

Lovely well written sexy and erotically hot "almost" romance story. Allow me to explain the "almost". Ms. Summers sets the stage with first our heroine, Olivia who is hanging on financially by her fingernails. She is a recent graduate from a prestigious university and her friends all are monied and she is not. She has just experienced rejection from a boyfriend of this social circle. Apparently she did not measure up to his standards, even though

I have posted this review on the 4th book as well, but I realized that it probably doesn't do most people a lot of good there since they've most likely already read the first three books by the time they would see it. I've put a couple things in spoiler tags but for the most part I haven't revealed anything that you couldn't already see coming a mile away.

This series is a perfect example of how choosing the wrong POV and not knowing where to end it can ruin the whole thing. From the beginning, I

Not having read other works by Willow Summers before, I was immediately intrigued with her synopsis and the cover. As soon as the story begins, we get to meet Olivia Johnston, a recent college graduate who is in search for a job. Without any luck, her friend tells her about a position that just recently opened where she works, but it comes with a catch. The CEO just happens to need an assistant that is not afraid to take on challenges,
My word, Hunter Carlisle is a hot mess. Sexy, but a hot mess. A hot mess of sexiness?

The basic premise of the story is every HR rep's nightmare, but how can you not be sucked (see what I did there?) in when the CEO has a separate contract for his admin assistant, and everyone knows what is required of said admin assistant?

The stipulations might sound totally insane, especially given what Olivia got her college degree in, you would think she wouldn't have to entertain the thought of accepting the

Olivia needs a job. Despite graduating from a prestigious college, no one wants to give her a chance, either she doesn't have enough experience or she is over qualified. Her friend Kimberly gives her the heads up on a great, but unusual, job opportunity. Hunter Carlisle needs an assistant, one that will offer a little something extra! But, that little something extra might be more than Olivia can give. Pushed to the brink of desperation, Olivia takes the job despite her reservations. She soon ...more

What did you do with the rest of my book? Seriously, this is becoming a major pet peeve of mine. Cutting a book in half to sell more books is bad business. Books just like plays have a first, second, and third act--in the same book. I'll be honest the damned book is freaking great. If Fifty Shades of Grey would have been this good I would have understood the hype. The female lead is strong, opinionated, and takes no shit from her boss/lover. Her boss is an emotionally abused rich boy that needs ...more

Olivia and Hunter were intriguing enough to hook me in but too been there done that in storyline.
Olivia is fresh out of school living on a dwindling bank account and needs a job, she is unable to find anything. When her friend from college tells her about an interview for a great job with amazing pay and benefits she is excited till she learns about the extras....see Hunter, the boss to be, also expects a sex toy, to be available to him when he needs.

She goes on the interview, insta-connection,

I'm a sucker for books with poor heroine so when I saw the first paragraph of the blurb, I got excited that I immediately read this without reading reviews or even finishing the blurb.
That's why I felt betrayed with that ending. I know, it's all on me for not reading the last paragraph of the blurb.

Anyways, for my review:
My kind of heroine. Olivia is poor, smart, hardworking and curvy.
But not my kind of hero. Hunter is rich and generous, yes, but I like my hero alpha, possessive, obsessive

This is my first book with Willow Summer's and she's brilliant! I have been completely hooked from the start! I love strong female leads. Olivia's character is innocent but strong willed and so easy to relate too! Hunter Carlisle is exactly what you would expect a very dark dominent CEO to be! I was hooked with his character from the start! Things seem mild right now but I see the steam rising! The plot is executed very well! The ending leaves you on the edge of you seat! I can't wait to start ...more
The plot is nothing you haven't read before: billionaire meets college graduate looking for her first job, employs her with an enormous salary with benefits mostly for himself (constant sexual availability).
There was a certain similarity between this book and a series written by Sylvia Day, plots, story lines, main characters and supporting characters are too similar to be ignored.

The first book ends in a cliff hanger, you'll have to pay for three more installments to get to the HEA.

No, thank
